How Boehner could get ousted from the speaker’s chair

PersonalLiberty– A number of Republicans in the House Freedom Caucus are making a not-too-subtle overture toward their Democratic peers that, if carried to its logical conclusion, would result in the removal of Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) as speaker of the House.

Roll Call reported Thursday that members of the Freedom Caucus, incensed at Boehner’s retribution against conservative Republicans who stood against the passage of the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill, have invited House Democrats to consider a motion to remove Boehner — all while insinuating which way GOP members of the Freedom Caucus would vote.  more

  1. It’s too bad the leadership and the conservative rank and file can’t focus on a common enemy but there is none. The conservatives’ enemy is the democrat party and the leadership’s enemy is the conservative rank and file.

  2. like its just boehners fault. I hate that orange man.
    doesn’t matter who you elect, the money men will always get what they want.
    you want to end corruption in public office, reduce the federal budget, period. no money no corruption.

  3. The Dems are going to go along with a plan that has the intent to put a conservative in the Speaker’s chair? Sorry, I don’t see that happening.

  4. The damn GOP are like the slow, fat kid slavering to get in with the ‘gang’. Suckered into outrageous acts and deeds in hopes of acceptance, but laughed at all along. Betrayal, then appeasement and repeat. They will be strung along, like fish on a line! HOOK, it, then play with it as you reel it in, but in the end, it dies and gets eaten, or is rejected. DAMN FOOLS, all of them. But Americans are the bigger fools, and we are damned until WE CHANGE THE WAY WE VOTE.

  5. You got that right! My two pseudo-Conservative Senators turned turncoat as soon as their dainty feet touched the sacred soil of Chinless McConnells man cave. They gave up their convictions faster than a french soldier spotting what looked like a german helmet off in the distance. However, to cut them some slack, it was done for love: the love of money, perks, nobility, lifetime benefits, little to no work required and only a little sweat expended conning the folks back home every six years! Plus the great opportunity to get filthy rich like Harry Reid, et al!

  6. True That! My Representative is gaga over Johnny! He does everything the Great Boner asks him to do: How high John?
    Yes, John black is red! Yes, John I can polish your John! Absolutely, John, you own my vote use it as you may!

  7. Well, Hastert voted like a RINO, because it’s obvious to us now that “they” had something from his past to make him compliant. This begs the question, “What do ‘they’ have on Boner[sic]?”

  8. When Marco Rubio cast the deciding vote for 0bamaTrade, he became anathema to me. He’s done in my book. I e-mailed his office and said so. Yesterday, I called his office, and the young lady who answered the phone conceded that the calls are running about 90% in that direction.

    If he wants to be POTUS, he better run as a Democrat.
